|Bradster2k||Re: Jimmy Page's stage Marshalls|
I agree about the Supro, it's unlikely it was the Thunderbolt model as he (JP) said often in interviews that it was the "small" Supro he used. Many believe it was the Model S-6424 but the schematic S-6424 shows a Push-Pull 6973 output feeding a 12" speaker.
I have 2 pics of the Supro amp that most closely fits descriptions, but don't have a place to post them on the web, sorry.
(also have a great copy of the S-6424 schematic)
Regarding the Marshalls, Jimmy Page has said many times in interviews that he used the 1959SLP models which are 100w (4xEL34) amps, but he had his re-fitted in the early 70's with KT88's.
This is interesting because there are some really old pictures of him playing on what looks like a Marshall Major, maybe he aquired a taste for the high voltage KT88 sound early on.
(JP) "...at 14 I got a 'Grazzioso' copy of a stratocaster...".
1968 used a '58 Fender Telecaster given to him by Jeff Beck
(JP) "...I used the small Supro and Telecaster on all of the first album...".
1969 he found the '58 Les Paul & 100w Marshall combination doing studio sessions for LZ-2 album, and stayed with that for the duration of the band.
He also used a Gibson Les Paul "Black Beauty" 3-pickup model with a Bigsby tremolo before and during the first album era, the guitar was stolen in 1970 while on tour.
(can be seen on the new DVD)
from the "Song Remains The Same" era...
